Yesterday, Universal Detection Technology, a company specializing in protective technologies against bioterrorism and other infectious health threats, reported that it has received a purchase order from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for its bioterrorism detection equipment. The purchase order includes orders for UNDT’s 5-agent detection kits in addition to instructional training equipment for agents in the proper use of the equipment.

ATF, a unique law enforcement agency in the United States, protects communities from violent criminals, criminal organizations, the illegal use and trafficking of firearms, the illegal use and storage of explosives, acts of arson and bombings, acts of terrorism, and the illegal diversion of alcohol and tobacco products. The division regularly partners with communities, industries, law enforcement, and public safety agencies to safeguard the public we serve through information sharing, training, research and use of technology.

Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology, remarked, “ATF is a strong addition to our expanding customer base, comprised of other federal government agencies, local and state law enforcement, EMS and hazmat teams. The purchase order comes following our efforts to showcase and market UNDT’s bioweapons detection products to ATF and other government agencies at industry trade shows and conferences in the last year,” continued Tizabi.
